Unfortunately Dares had to have a little operation. He was running about in the park and somehow tore his dew claw. Apparently it was so bad he had to put 'under' at the vets whilst they sorted it all out.
However I think Dare is actually more unhappy about wearing the cone whilst it all heals, rather than having the operation.
In case you wondered that is me at the 'bottom' looking for my toy which you can see (but I couldn't) poking out from under his chair...
Funny how Dare never got any injuries doing Flyball all year and then this happens just running around the park!
